can I do for you?
just wanted to tell you
that I love how you
rip on stupid people and religion.You’re
my favorite Objectivist website!
but too bad
I’m not an Objectivist.
you must be!
do you dislike about Objectivism?
the fact that Ayn Rand sucks
and Objectivists are shitheads. But
other than that, nothing.I
guess I like words that start with “o.”Anyway,
let me ask you
this: if I asked you to name

the idea of its
being about special people who are better than everyone else, but then
that when Nietzsche does it, it’s more an existentialist
description of the way
humanity advances itself, wherein even the gifted individual eternally
struggles to obtain fulfillment from a world where, although nothing is
condemned, neither is anything wholly justified.Plus
he includes artists, which is faggy.
basically, you read Rand

you’re perfect the way you
are and society is unfair to you.But

I want you to go back
over what you just
said very carefully and try to see how it is exactly the same shit as
falsehoods, and we only
believe things that
are objectively true.
the idea that rich people are rich because they
are smarter and
worked harder than everyone else, whereas poor people are poor because
dumb and/or lazy and fucked it up themselves?
don’t want to hear it, but
people don’t want to hear it
because it can be objectively falsified in a few dozen different ways,

scores, or how parental income is a far more accurate predictor of
income than IQ is.

are pretty lies and special rules

is a school of

currency of all human

realize Ayn Rand only came up with that because
she was ugly, right?
I was just saying that
Ayn Rand was
heinous and dumpy and hairy and smelled bad, and that the only way she
get anyone to bang her was to start a cult that ordered people to bang

up special rules to give herself unfair assistance in an area where she

one of the guys who helped run the cult decided he couldn’t

to Ayn Rand, this makes me better than Ayn Rand.

about how your taxes are higher
when in point of fact your taxes are lower.Did
you mean that your taxes are higher on some

I in principle do not have access, or what?

yes, the taxes of

going to start looking out for Number
One, and not worrying about anybody else.
you are against a government-run, single-payer
health care system?
am totally for it.
you see, I am a
freelance writer and
teacher, and even though I am educated and driven and contribute a lot

even come close to having a job that gives me health care, and unless I
drastic career change probably never will have a job that gives me

the plan that you
oppose is the cheapest,
and probably only, way for me to get health care.

I could take issue
with your assertion
that it takes 300 teachers to be as “productive” as
one professional baseball
I’ll just ask you
why I should care that such a plan does this.
Because even if you
and a few other productive people who have fallen through the cracks
deserve health care, a lot of the other people who would
benefit from a government single-payer system don’t.
not just supposed to be against helping other people
at my expense, I’m

I’ve got to go home and transcribe

I’ve got to

mean how your

was nice meeting you, Objectivist.Goodbye.
